    So the important question here is... will this game be set before or after the events in Tomb Raider 5 / Chronicles? Or is that game not considered canon?

    Yeah. If it's a reboot, I see it as nothing that has come before really counts.

    Suppose Casino Royale is the exception (M).

    Yes, itīs a new origins story. Instead of having her plane crash on the Amazon, itīs now a boat crashing on a remote island.

    I hope it's a sexy island.

    When I reboot my computer I don't usually delete all my files and start over. :-/

    I don't think it's an instead of, she's much older in this than she was in the plane crash, probably twice the age.

    The last Tomb Raider wasn't that bad, but most of what got pushed out before it was pretty poor. The reboot is exactly what the series needed as it spent years going nowhere except into the ground.

    Words have different connotations according to context, pedant. : }

    As much as the the term itself makes me cringe in embarrassment, if it takes a reboot to get a self confessed Lara hater such as myself interested, reboot away.

    I liked Underworld, but it was a bit old school.

    Agreed. I've rubbed one out already and anticipate many more to come.

    I liked Underworld but I got bored by the bit where you use your motorbike to get around that open map. Ironic really as I had felt the game too linear up to that point.

    Underworld was part brilliant, part shit. Strange game.
  • Deleted user 6 December 2010 16:59:23
    Sums it up for me pretty much. I think I enjoyed the locations more than anything else, but the rest of it felt like a PS1 game. I still think it is a bloody good looking game. 5 quid on steam, winner.

    Yeah I had the exact same feeling. I think some parts of the game really felt right although the mechanics and story were a bit meh.

    GOL was spot on, so I'm optimistic about this game. As I said, Tomb Raider at it's very best really gave you that sense of wonder and discovery.

    I loved Underworld.

    If it does end up being open world as they hinted about some time back I hope its a mixture of Metroid Prime and classical Tomb Raider. Good puzzles + platforming mixed with finding items that let you explore/open up more areas of the map.

    Hope they're not making her American..

    I don't think there are any American females named Lara, so I hope the rebooted Lara Croft won't be the first. Most of them can't even pronounce it.

    I hope they actually use this opportunity to push it to new levels. I have my doubts though. Need more top adventure games.
  • Deleted user 6 December 2010 19:25:06
    Underworld is good considering the project lead died half way through (i think) and they had a load of problems after that.

    This new game excites me a lot, and yes, even the open world and multiplayer. Lara had lost some of her sex appeal too, but damn this new one is hot :)

    - Lara is 21 in this game
    - It's not only a reboot of the franchise but a reboot of the entire brand. As a result there will be no "real" Lara model this time.
    - They're doing performance capturing with this game
    - There are brutal deaths in the game this time. One is described as a deranged man stabbing Lara in the chest and then closing her eyes after she's dead. Another includes a boulder falling on her leg to trap her before another falls and crushes her head.
    - CD won't talk specifics on weapons but concept art shows a bow, shotgun and pistol
    - The lock on targeting system is gone and it now has a free aim system. CD says that it can compete with any of their competitors.
    - "I think that the major difference between this game and the old is the concept of smoke and mirrors," begins Darrell Gallagher, the studio head at Crystal Dynamics. "There was an illusion of freedom because of streaming and loading that would pop you out in a different location, but this is absolutely real. You can literally go any direction that you see and carve your own way to the finish line instead of being guide."
    - "It was important in the game to not only deliver the character arc of Lara Croft emotionally, but to deliver it in gameplay as well so the player gets to grow into a hardened survivor," says experienced director Noah Hughes. As the game unfolds, Lara will scavenge new tools and gear that augment her abilities. Lara's athletic prowess will also evolve. Some areas begin inaccessible due to physical limitations or scarce supplies. With the right skills and gear, however, the island is Lara's for the taking.
    - There are base camps in the game. Here you can combine items to create something new and access a skill system to upgrade Lara's abilities. You'll also be able to use base camps to fast travel to different locations to minimize backtracking.
    - You'll need to gather food and water in order to survive
    - There are humans in the game, including some of the crew members from the shipwreck off the coast of the island.

    Sounds fantastic.

    Sounds like just what Tomb Raider needed. A fresh face, new ideas, shaking up, and a team willing and excited about doing just that. It was at make or break time to be fair.

    I seriously would LOVE some sort of crossover with Nathan Drake in something though. Maybe a love interest in a bit of licenced dlc. Makes so much sense. To me anyway.

    Yeah, she's always been a loner and that was ok but if they broke her down a little emotionally it would give her more personality, make her more human rather than a pair of tits. They did it with Bond and people responded well.


    They are in the same medium of video games, would logically cross paths in their line of work in the fiction, and are both the best at what they do. They could be the first Beckham & Posh or Angelina & Brad of the virtual world. Ok, maybe not.

    .
    I'd like to point out that there seems to be a growing number of visually impaired people on the internet claiming that this new Lara looks more like a man than a woman. Now, i've done a few scientific tests involving my cock and would like to put the rest of you at ease concerning this.

    The first thing i noticed was that the people claiming she looked like a man, were in fact lady boys themselves, and in a scientific state of jealousy. Others were young brutish men that felt confronted with her confidence and assertiveness, therefore down playing her feminine atributes.

    Upon further detailed study i discovered something quite alarming. The mud on her right cheek (your left) and her sweeping hair on her left (your right!) gives the impression of deep cheek bones if you are blind as a bat. Someone that can't see what things look like may mistake this for a similar shape they have seen before . In this case, a young man.

    Now, why i said this may be quite alarming is this. Having blurred my own eyes in an attempt to see what they see, i discovered that the new Lara Croft is..... is.... none other than Vince Noir from the Mighty Boosh!

    !!

    This is an OUTRAGE!!

    I don't mind a 'reboot' (f*cking hate that word) as long as they don't lose sight of what made Tomb Raider great in the first place.

    Also, I hope this 'new' Lara hasn't lost the wit and sarcasm that was quite prevalent in the first couple of games. She lost all her sense of humor in a lot of the new ones.
